Caution required when buying from Costco online

We saw a side table at the Costco warehouse, but couldn't buy it at the time.  The thing weighs 200 pounds.  Then I saw it at Costco.ca and I just ordered it, as I really didn't know the warehouse price.  It was 30% more.  I tried to cancel right away, but you have to send an email, and nobody was working family day weekend.  That was $100 more with tax.

The wife is pissed at me.  So, the lesson is watch out for the big ripoffs.  'Nuff said.

Impulse shopper?

I get why your wife is annoyed.

Hey, she had the impulse at the warehouse. We only had the small car, and I looked at the horrendous weight of the thing, so shoot me. :)

Anyway, since it is identical to the store one, I can just take the toy car, go to Costco, load one on a rack, buy it, and immediately return it with the costca.ca receipt. I had asked them to give me a $50 discount so I wouldn't do anything, but they were miserable.

Whoa! The difference was over $150!
